helpful or a pointless exercise? cory booker, the hero mayor of newark, the guy who runs into a burning building to save lives, invites superstorm sandy victims into his home and rushes to aid a pedestrian hit by a car. heroism so out of the norm, it's been lampooned by booker himself and new jersey governor chris christie. >> gov, sit tight. i got this. >> booker. >> governor, stand back! i got this. i got this. >> booker! >> now booker says he will honor a challenge he made to one of his million plus twitter followers to live on food stamps for a week to see how the other half lives. although it's fair to ask, as mayor of newark, doesn't he already know? the s.n.a.p. challenge, as booker calls it, means eating on just $4.32 a day. he he says he's doing to, quote, raise awareness and understanding of food insecurity, reduce the stigma of s.n.a.p. participation, and amplify compassion for individuals and communities in need of assistance. he was told by a constituent that nutrition is not a responsibility of the government. he seems to be itching to prove her wrong. he could run against

this statement, and i'll quote for you. lou wees sanchez was an unpaid college intern in our newark office for approximately two months. no staff member responsible for managing the internship program had reason to believe, based on the interview process, that sanchez had any criminal background or immigration issues. clearly mr. sanchez sought to deceive our staff. upon notification from authorities of his arrest, mr. sanchez's relationship with our office immediately ended. senator menendez was briefed on the situation today. and he is appalled. he has no tolerance for those who invite the law and expects the authorities to continue to prosecute the case. senator menendez believes this incident under scores the reason we need comprehensive immigration reform that provides zero tolerance for those who have criminal records. joining me on set is cnn a's legal contributor, paul cal lan. paid or unpaid, you would assume that any government office would require a background check. >> i wouldn't assume anything about the government, ashleigh. they're pretty lax in a lot of respects, and you kn

the same for jfk and newark. one of the big reasons, the weather is improving. we're still seeing some low ceilings here but the rain has all but moved out of new york city and those winds which have been the big problem have died down in to the teens so that's really no issue for the pilots here. what is still an issue, though, is the fact that so many people are traveling for the holidays, trying to get home from the holidays or get to the next holiday destination for the new year and unfortunately we have another storm system that's going to be working its way in to the northeast in the next couple of days, just in time for the new yore's holiday so, in fact, we could see more stranded travelers over the weekend in and out of new york city. from la guard yarks i'm meteorologist julie martin of the weather channel. back to you, craig. >> thanks to you. >>> coming up, the latest on former president bush's health after a spokesperson said the former president has suffered a, quote, series of setbacks. >>> plus, new details about senator mike crapo's arrest for drunk driving. it is just one
to newark when it experienced a mechanical issue. >> that's what i'm trying to tell them. they can pass -- if anything's going on, it will be in the rear of the wing. third door on each side. >> which wing? >> we don't know. >> it's behind the wing where the high/low electrical stuff is. we don't anticipate anything. it's where it needs to be. >> there are only three dream liners flying in the u.s. internationally, another 33. boeing's production of the aircraft was billions over budget, and years late. it's the first commercial airliner featuring lightweight carbon composites. that means it uses less fuel, it doesn't mean fewer concerns. >> make sure they don't see any dischoration. >> they don't see anything abnormal on either side. >> it's important to note, there were no injuries during this emergency landing. united tells cnn the flight's passengers were rebooked on a different plane to newark. boeing says they're going to be troubleshooting and working with united to try to determine the cause. >> tory donnan, thanks very much. >>> you're in the situation room, happening now, a de
. here is a business flooded out at the auto pier in newark. the shore, newark, all types of communities affected. i wanted to walk through these photos to give my colleagues and fellow americans the sense of the damage we have seen throughout the state. but what i have shown you still does not do justice to the full impact of the storm or the devastation people went through. every part of new jersey was affected by the storm and we need your help to recover. now, unfortunately, there are those voices who are saying the cost to help families rebuild and recover is too much, and that it should be reduced. that in this emergency, unlike many other similar emergencies in the past, we should do something smaller and wait to do the rest later. those who make such arguments could not be respectfully more wrong. you can't rebuild half of a path station, a little now and a little sometime more in the future. you can't permanently repair half of the mantoloking bridge. half a bridge is not a bridge at all. you can't hire a contractor to rebuild a house or restore half of a community. you need the
to undergo another surgery. >> newark mayor cory booker is on the sixth day of his food stamps challenge diet. he said on linked in he's getting tired of sweet potatoes and canned beans and vegetables. he's living for a week on new jersey's version on food stamp to call attention to the nutritional needs of low income folks. he said the program could be cut as politicians trying to cut spending in washd, and, of course, that worries him. another thing that worries him is the tax hike that will hit about everybody if we go off the so-called fiscal cliff. here's what he told cnn this morning. >> people who don't have the extra money to spend then hurt the stores they would shop at, the food they would buy and so on and so forth. this is a time in our fragile economy we cannot have a government especially republicans holding hostage all of this country. >> booker also says he's trying to decide whether or not he's going to run for u.s. senate or governor. he told us this morning that governor christie is vulnerable it to a chal laeng because of his stand on the environment as well as women's iss
in newark, that's a great son. willie, in your home state? >> they're running a charter school in east new york. they've got three of them in the city. >> it has been good in that case to see the government and the union work together. i do want to ask you one question, and not rhetorically. do you believe in a place like spring hill, tennessee, where there's a new volkswagen plant, the jobs came back but at a low wage, some of them at $12 an hour. do you think that's a good thing where they wouldn't be there even though it's a low wage? >> it's better than having the jobs in china, but those kinds of jobs eventually mean we can't have the kind of standard of living we had in this country. you know, you're not going to turn down a plant that's bringing jobs in, but, you know, what about the environmental laws? who's going to protect workers against not only the wage stuff but what about all the chemicals people get exposed to and these kinds of things in these kinds of industries? these are complicated, tough issues. i think throwing the unions under the bus is very stupid. >> harold meyer
